  1. £0. It has its own ABI code and is a model in its own right, insure it as a ST3 215 upgrade, the claim stats are lower which can make some peoples premium slightly lower than a standard car. Call some insurers who specialise in mods too, I'm with greenlight and I can add any mountune mod and most others for free.
  2. Not just the tabs in a different place the cap is a different size and shape,
  3. On Facebook have a look at Ford Dynamic Lighting.
  4. To counter that, it wasn't cheaper for me when I bought my current ST or cheaper when I ordered my next ST a couple of weeks ago.
  5. Drivethedeal will be cheaper.
  6. When I saw one of these at Dunton last year, because of its size I thought it might have been the new Fiesta (thank god it's not) or a China/India only model (rumour of escort model for China have been around) but, no it's this Ka. I like the mk1 and the mk2 isn't bad but this new one is big and ugly, does look slightly better in the pic above than the lower spec frozen white I saw. the car in the pic looks like it's on 15" wheels so shows how big the car is.
  7. I've read different articles and its ranged from 8-21 seconds, to be honest you're not likely to see it come off overboost unless you're in a autobahn or you stay flat out in gear. with insurance on the ST, if you add the mountune upgrade and insure it as a ST(1,2or3)215 upgrade, the premium is usually lower, because it's claim figures for that model are less than the model without the upgrade.
  8. As Dan said there is loads you can do to an ST. as you've got gloss black alloys then maybe gloss black plastics front and rear, wrap the roof, wing mirrors and bottom lip of the front bumper gloss black. cheap simply mods are LEDs inside and out, chrome indicator bulbs, painted washer jets. Gel overlays for the ST badges and ford badges (if you can find someone who will do the ford badges) powerwise there's so many options it depends on what you want and budget. things I would suggest that make a difference to how the car feels to drive are lowering springs, short shift and rear motor mount (roll restrictor).
  9. It's got an overboost which takes it up to 200ps, as its only for 15 seconds or do they aren't allowed to advertise the car as having 200ps so have to use the non overboost figure. the ST200 on overboost is 215ps (it basically has the mountune map on it) 200ps is the non overboost power output
  10. Modified is a word that confuses and worries insurers in equal measure, standard they understand. Oh and the ST is 197bhp (200ps)
  11. If you go into a dealer give them your reg and tell them what you want the should be able to help, mine have been really good at finding parts even for older models. these can help too.
  12. Go to the ford website and download the fiesta brochure, it will have all the different specs and options, factor in that the dress up kit is £500 and it might make more sense to go for a ST line than a Zetec. Get prices from drivethedeal and ask your local dealer to match it eg Zetec in magnetic grey with dress up pack as only option is £11k(can only spec 16" wheels not those in the pic) add £500 for the ecoboost version. ST line in magnetic, dress up kit and 17" alloys are standard £12.3k(100ps) £12.7k(125ps) £12.9k(140ps) obviously adding options will bump the price up, going for the kitchen sink bumps the STline up to £14.3k/14.5/14.6
  13. It's normal all ST3 are the same, it's just a ST2 with all the electrical options whereas the ST1 has more differences. it I'll show up as a 3 on the V5, B pillar sticker and any database you put the reg in.
  14. Probably the same lead time as normal STs' some dealers have them in stock so if you go into a dealer their ordering system might show available 200s on it. For exMple Dinnages in Haywards Heath West Sussex have one in their showroom at the moment got £23700. You've really got to want that colour to warrant paying nearly £7k more than a ST3.
  15. Except for the ones it was ordered with after 01/06/16
